Teaching Philosophy

I believe that teaching students the fundamentals of art by developing their understanding of techniques, methods and the proper use of tools, will enable them to achieve artwork that shows skill and understanding.

Combined with building an inner awareness, connecting to innate creativity and intuition allows for more clarity and authenticity. By combining both the technical and  inner awareness, original art can begin to come forth.

As a teacher I am mindful about the way I choose to communicate. I try to look for the good in everything and encourage my students to have a positive attitude. Most importantly as a teacher, it is imperative for me to stay receptive, flexible and continue learning.
